SENTENCED TO DEATH uppermost, and it should be arranged j that the charge be kept down to ass close a figure as possible. Again u'John Dillon Must Hang fdr Killing clause should'be inserted enabling the j a Montreaj Constable. city to acquire the wells in later years j_____ if considered desirable. Naturally a private company is not willing to go into a problematical enterprise with- out being assured that, if gas is found, they will reap the profits, but the city uiso has interests i-u In; con- sidered and none are more import- ant than those we have mentioned. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Democratic party suffers more than it may at present realize by the death of Governor Johnson of Minne- sota. Montreal, Sept. Dillon, the book agent who killed Constable Governor Johnson's life story ought to be an inspiration to every young man. He rose from obscurity to a high position in his country. Like Garfield and Lincoln he was born amongst the common, people but by his honesty and zeal to serve the peo- ple he rose to a high place the great republic. Lethbridge ought to put in a bid for the bout between Pi-ary and Cook. Cook and Peary landed on the same day and from now on they will be busy endeavoring to land blows upon each other's honesty. Cook says he has a white witness to prove he reached trie Pole. Peary's evidence is very much colored. Shea onApril G, 1903, was found guil- ty of murder by the grand jury in the court of the king's bench on Satur- j day, and was sentenced to be hang- ed on Nov. 19. Dillo i was the lead- ing actor in one of the most dramatic crimes ever perpetrated in Montreal. For several hours he kept at bay over 100 armed policemen in his house on Mance street, and it was only after being drowned out by the fire brigade and wounded by many bullets from the policemen's guns, that access to his room was finally obtained. In addition to shooting Shea dead, Dillon severely wounded Chief Detect ive Carpenter and Constable Fou- cault. Dillon showed no concern when the sentence was announced. His lawyer will ask for a commutation to life imprisonment.

He rose from the humblest of surround- ings to a .foremost position not only in his' native state, but in the repub- lic. 'He" was a man of the people, loyal to the people and their interests. He impressed, the entire republic with his high ideals, his sanoness and "his honesty. When his name was first mentioned in connection with the De- mocratic nomination for President he did not display any eagerness to en- ter the fray., for it was characteristic of the man to refrain from pushing himself to the front. He was willing "to serve his country, but he was too 'fine a type of man to attempt to foist himself on his party. His honesty and high principles made the people demand his services. It is gratifying .to read in the des- patches that his vitality was due to his good .living. He kept himself free from many of the w-eaknesses of pub- lic men and leaves the memory of a well lived as a heritage to his We are proud of Montreal.

LET THEM BORE 'The city spent a considerable sum of mbney in a" search for gas and ought "to be satisfied now to give' pri- vate parties, a chance to gamble on the proposition. When the attempt was first made to find'gas there'was a feeling that its discovery was within the range of possibility, but the fruitless" boring for over a year satisfied the majority of people that it was merely a gamble and was foolish for the city to spend money in this way when their was really little hope of success. Natur- al Jy we would like to have gas if it was discovered, owned .and operated as a municipal proposition, but -we can only look for that by conducting the boring as a civic enterprise, and in our opinion that is out of the question after our experience of re- cent years.' 'The city needs all the money secure to carry out im- port ant, improvements such as walks, waterworks and sewer extensions, paved streets and innumerable other necessities facing a growing city, spread out over a large tract of land. The city council- in framing an agreement with. >a private 'company should take great care to pro'tect the interests of the city and citizens. The matter of "rates to "be charged for gas in case it is found should be kept (Moose Jaw Times) j E. W. Hume, at one time a member j ;J the staff of E. A. Baker i Co. firm, arrived in the city yes-1 terday morning from Calgary. He was accompanied by Mrs. Hume and Master Edwin, their four year old son, and by George Healey. They made the trip from Calgary via Leth- bridge in their automobile in five days. Their speedometer registered 560 miles and the time included stops at one or two points on the road. Several attempts have been made at this trip by Messrs. Hume and. Heal- ey, and the first to succeed without having to be assisted by rail part of the way. Between Lethbridge and Medicine Hat they encountered poor roads and for many miles none at all. One dayvfor five hours they went on slo_w the open prairie. They usually succeed in making a j town for the night, but on two occa- sions were forced to camp out, the last being just south of Chaplin, where they missed the regular trail and landed in a slough just as the thunder and rain storm came up. They enjoyed the trip very much and regard it as one of the most pleasant outings in their experience. i LOAN on Farm Lands t and City Property at 8 per cent, interest Terms of payment ar- ranged to suit borrower Hatch Coons FARM LANDS AND CITY PROPERTY Phone 159 Oliver Block THE LITTLE SUCKERS A CHANCE" Or in other words, Make your Baby Darling" just as happy, healthy and comfortable as is possible, and this you can best do by getting aU of Baby's Requirements, such as Feeding Bottles, tipples.
